Thick Place or Doubling

Thick Place or Doubling — This is the result of two unwanted ends of roving running into one end of filling yarn during the spinning process causing the yarn to be twice its normal size. An end on the spinning frame can only run this way for a short time before the bobbin will become too large for the ring.
